Between the Lines

Between The Lines Winery is the dream of two brothers who happen to be two of the youngest winemakers in Ontario.  Since 1998, Greg and Yannick Wertsch have grown and sold grapes from their 43-acre family vineyard in Niagara-on-the-Lake.

After finishing their studies in Niagara and Germany, the Brothers opened the winery in 2010. Their no-nonsense approach is seen on the label and in the name Between The Lines. It’s literally a map of their location on Four Mile Creek Road in the center of Niagara-on-the-Lake. 

The Wertsch brothers have built a reputation of producing premium, fruit-forward wines at a great price. Cool-climate varieties like Riesling, Gewürztraminer, Pinot Noir and Cabernet Franc are the grapes that make up their core Red Barn wines. The team also produces a barrel-aged Chardonnay and four Big Red Reserve wines and Icewines.  Their hard work developing the vineyard, the wines and the winery has paid off  in one of the hottest new properties in Niagara-on-the-Lake.

For the visitor, you are in for a treat.  At Between the Lines, don’t be surprised if your tour is led by Greg or Yannick. It’s an opportunity to learn about wine and winemaking directly from the owners.  An experience only a few wineries offer!  During a visit to Between the Lines, guests feel the passion that everyone at BTL pours into each and every tasting and wine experience. 

With their roots firmly planted in Niagara-on-the-Lake, Greg and Yannick Wertsch are committed to making award-winning wines that fully express the terroir of Four Mile Creek and to elevating Between the Lines Winery into the heart of the Niagara-on-the-Lake Wine Route.
